Remote Pilot Ground School

Aeroapps Technology
The #1 ground school course for the FAA Drone Exam. Over 20,000 pilots have relied on FlightReady to train and prepare for the Remote Pilot knowledge test.

If you plan to operate a drone commercially, you must obtain an FAA Remote Pilot certificate by passing the FAA. Many test takers fail the FAA drone exam on the first try, and must pay $150 to take the exam again. This app includes a complete training course that covers every area tested on the FAA drone exam.

This course is all you need to prepare for the FAA Remote Pilot exam even if you have zero drone experience. After you complete the course you can review all completed lessons and access all lesson questions.

Unlike other drone course providers, we do not limit your access to one year, and all future updates are free.


Ten hours of lesson content (based on average completion time), covering all areas tested by the FAA on the Remote Pilot exam.

▸ Weather Formation
▸ Hazardous Weather
▸ Principles of Flight
▸ Aerodynamics for UA Pilots
▸ Airspace for UA Pilots
▸ Special Use Airspace
▸ Remote Pilot Certification
▸ Fitness for Flight
▸ Aeronautical Decision Making
▸ Airworthiness
▸ Obtaining Weather Information
▸ Loading and Performance
▸ Aeronautical Charts
▸ Flight Rules (UAS)
▸ Operation Near Airports
▸ Operational Hazards and Emergencies


After completing the course, prepare for the FAA exam with over 400 practice questions, including official FAA questions. FlightReady identifies your weakest areas to focus your efforts, rather than wasting time answering questions you've already mastered.

▸ Create a practice session targeting only those questions that you miss most often
▸ View definitions of key terms and acronyms in lessons and answer explanations
▸ Create new session from all missed questions in the previous session
▸ Create custom study sessions that include or exclude questions that require referencing figures, the use of a flight computer, or that have already been answered. Great for iPhones and on the go studying.
▸ Mark questions for later review within a session
▸ View definitions of key terms and acronyms
▸ Flashcards
▸ Simulated FAA exams administered under the same rules as the real exam
▸ Detailed explanations, many with high resolution images
▸ Full text of applicable regulations where applicable
▸ Regular question bank updates


Proficiency is tracked using a proprietary algorithm that assigns a mastery level to each question, which helps your avoid wasting time re-answering mastered questions. Our statistics include:

▸ Average score on all simulated FAA exams.
▸ Mastery of the overall question bank
▸ Weakest subject areas
▸ Lesson completion status and quiz scores
▸ Total time spent in course

Reports can be shared via email, iMessage, and more.


▸ Multi-tasking support allows you to use FlightReady side by side with other apps
▸ Key terms are defined in the lesson by tapping on the term
▸ Sync your data across all of your iOS devices
▸ Take the course in Guided or Review Mode. In Guided Mode, you will be taken through each lesson in sequence, and required to complete each and every activity, knowledge check, and quiz. Review Mode allows you to complete lessons out of order, or skip lessons entirely.
▸ Lifetime question bank updates are included

An FAA remote pilot license is required to operate drones commercially. FlightReady has trained tens of thousands of drone pilots, and offers the most complete drone subject matter coverage. Our test prep and training courses are the key to success on the FAA drone exam.

NOTE: As of March 16, 2021, FAA-certified remote pilots are not required to take a recurrent exam every 2 years to continue exercising their privileges. See 14 CFR 107.65.

What's new in version 2.39.2
Fixes a bug where some users could not create a new account using a gmail address on certain versions of iOS.

The FAA has delayed new regulations for night operations, training requirements, and flight over people to March 16. Updated course content will be released prior to that date.
